Trying to keep time
Closer than we like
Memories still lie
Faces of the day
Pressed up to your spine
Blessings still to come

Precious things unsaid
As the night begins
Who will hang his head

    General CommentThis is one of my favorite Low songs. So chill, yet brooding, like a prologue to a very important moment. The song's simplicity lends itself to a vast possibility of meanings, but I'd like to use it to describe a situation we might all find ourselves in. There's somebody that you have strong feelings for, and the days go by until one night there's a social gathering that you know she/he will be at. You have it all planned out in your head, the things you'll say, the timing of your words once and for all. But then you find yourself too nervous or too hesitant to make a move, and the night ends, unfulfilled. It's always up until when the opportunity is right in our faces that we pass time thinking about the past and analyzing all of our memories, shaping them to how we want.
